Why study International Master in Geotechnics and Foundations?

In addition to deepening the large traditional blocks, the Master also has an impact on the aspect of numerical modeling in geotechnics, which is essential today to perform responsibilities and functions in this field.

About this course

Who is it for?

The Master in Geotechnics of Structuralia is aimed at all those professionals in the civil engineering and construction sector, which include Civil Engineers, Canals and Ports, Geologists, Geological Engineers, Mining Engineers, Industrial Engineers with specialization in Construction and Architects particularly involved and / or interested in geotechnics, who seek to expand and strengthen their knowledge and skills in this area in order to enhance and develop their professional career.

Goals:

  • Expand and strengthen the knowledge of students in the theory of Soil and Rock Mechanics.
  • Analyze and understand the effect of water on the ground and on structures.
  • Deepen the constitutive models available to model the behavior of soils and rocks.
  • Acquire knowledge and skills to carry out numerical modeling in geotechnics.
  • Provide students with the tools and methodologies for the calculation and sizing of deep and shallow foundations, land containment structures and land treatments, among other actions of geotechnical engineering.
  • Provide the techniques to carry out optimal and efficient designs and sizing.
  • Distinguish the different types of soils and rocks, know their fundamental properties and learn to identify them correctly.
  • Know in detail the different types of in-situ and laboratory tests to characterize the terrain.122511_pexels-photo-443422.jpeg Tim Gouw / Pexels
